Almost everyone has a ‘worst Christmas gift’ story. From ugly sweaters to hand-knitted hats, if you haven’t received one yet, just wait.

Consumer Reports quantified the common complaints in national poll. If booze is your go-to gift for the holidays, you might want to rethink it. One in four Americans surveyed said it’s the least desirable gift to receive. Wine fared much better. Only 6% said they wouldn’t want to receive a bottle as a gift.

The survey asked people which gifts they considered “undesirable”. The top ten worst gifts, according to the survey include:

  • Spirits (whiskey, rum, vodka, brandy, etc.) — 25%
  • Flowers/plants — 23%
  • Home decor (frames, candles) — 13%
  • Books — 8%
  • Kitchen items — 7%
  • Clothes — 6%
